Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., has announced that Conserve Italia is using Thermo Scientific GC/MS and LC/MS systems for pesticide analysis of food products.

Conserve Italia processes around 650,000 tons of raw materials each year, including fruits, vegetables and tomatoes and provides the European market with finished goods such as fruit juices, canned vegetables and tomato sauces and purees.

The organization is using the Thermo Scientific TSQ Quantum GC and TSQ Quantum Access Max triple stage quadrupole mass spectrometers to achieve compliance with maximum residue limits (MRLs) specified for pesticides in food.

Conserve Italia selected the TSQ Quantum GC and TSQ Quantum Access Max because of the instruments' ability to perform rapid and accurate GC/MS and LC/MS pesticide analysis, coping with the laboratory's extremely high throughput of more than 10,000 samples per year.

Following implementation of the instruments, Conserve Italia has significantly improved productivity and has achieved substantial cost savings, the company has claimed. Combining the systems with the QuEChERS sample preparation method has resulted in pesticide analysis that is three times faster than with previous instruments.
